Warner Bros has the rights to do a “Bone” film (films?).  They got the rights in 2008.

Money. 

Unless it’s a sequel/remake/based on a toy and/or 80’s tv show, Hollywood seems reluctant to gamble on ‘original’ ideas.

“Bone” is a great comic, but it doesn’t have a cartoon/tv series, successful toy line or 40-plus years of back issues to make Hollywood say “Brand Recognition! We can bank on this nostaligia wave!”

Hollywood’s recently tried to do a slew of big-budget fantasy movies based on popular children’s books with little box-office success (“Cirque Du Freak: Vampire’s Assistant”, “Eragon”, “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief”, “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole”, “the Golden Compass” etc etc etc).  Those were works that did have ‘brand recognition’ (at least with the kiddie demographic they were aiming for), and yet they still under-performed for the studios.

So….it’d cost a lot of money to make, it’s not a sure thing at the box office and they know they can crank out ‘Miley Cyrus and Tyler Lautner in Joannie Loves Chachi: The Musical’ for a fraction of the cost of “Bone” and make thier money back in a weekend.
